Nearly 400 people filled Grosvenor Auditorium at National Geographic in Washington, D.C. for BE.Hive: Climate Change Needs Behavior Change in 2019, a day-long summit exploring solutions to climate change through the lens of human behavior.
A growing movement for behavioral solutions
Join Rare’s Center for Behavior & the Environment (BE.Center) as the magic returns in June 2024 with BE.Hive: Behavioral Insights to Environmental Impacts in Washington, D.C. at Arena Stage, the Mead Center for American Theater. Whether you’re looking to change yourself, nudge your peers, or move society, this one-day summit uniting environmental changemakers, behavioral scientists, designers and thought leaders will be an event you don’t want to miss!
BE.Hive: Behavioral Insights to Environmental Impacts is a one-day summit that will explore the role of behavioral insights in environmental interventions and conservation outcomes that have been achieved as a result of behavioral and social sciences.
Expect a day filled with notable speakers, interactive games, and exciting new behavioral solutions. Sessions will relate to biodiversity conservation, agriculture and land management, climate change, water, plastic pollution, and more! A final agenda will be posted closer to the event.
Questions we anticipate to cover during the day include:
What evidence-based impacts have been achieved as a result of behavioral science?
How do we measure success?
What is the additive value of these approaches?
How does individual behavior change relate to policy reform or corporate change?
How do you scale behavior change across countries, regions and the world?
Check back often for additional speaker announcements! Here’s a few of who you can expect to see.
